Found on campus…obviously I love cats!!!
My voting outfit is on! Today I will vote for equality no matter what one’s race, sexual orientation, gender, or income is. That is where I stand.

Life at Bennington College is beautiful.
Well I have to say it has been exactly one week that I have resided in Vermont. So far I really like it. The campus I live and work on is by far one of the most gorgeous I have ever seen. Waking up in the morning and having these views are insane. The job seems wonderful. I think as I start to settle in more I will find lots of challenges but lots of rewards and great things as well. I think as far as a first job goes I could not ask for something that is more suited for me. It is allowing me to do things I am interested in and push me into new ways of thinking. It is also breaking me out of my mold. I will be able to experience new opportunities that I think will allow for me to grow and also figure out where I would like my future in this field to head. The people here have been great too. I have been included and things are not nearly as lonely as I thought they may be. I still enjoy the moments I get to myself but it is nice to have people that work to include you especially when you do not know an area at all.
With all of that said I still miss home. Transition is hard and it makes me tired. It is hard to step into something so new and I yearn for the comfort that I had in my past location and position. I know I needed pushed but I miss people and my old apartment. Things are great but it doesn’t mean they are easy. Then again nothing good in life is usually easy. I am sure I will continue to reflect throughout the year but it is good to put some words out there as to where I am right now.

Yep I am pretty sure that is the outside of my apartment. I still cannot believe I live here.
Sometimes things work out and are meant to be. A few weeks ago in a post I talked about my dream campus to work at and weirdly enough things happened to fall into place. I will be moving to Vermont in a week and I cannot believe it. I am extremely excited and nervous all at the same time. Things became pretty real today but I have worked so hard to get here. You go through college and graduate school with goals and when things actually work out it is hard to actually believe it. It has been a long and crazy summer of job interviews across the coast but I wouldn’t trade it. I am so happy and excited for this journey. Life is about the ride and I know I am surely in for one. Challenges and bumps there will be but I am sure it will all be worth it…or at least let’s hope so.
Tonight I met Mr. Boh and it was magical.
Well I do not often get photos of myself taken but I saw this wall in downtown Baltimore and I couldn’t resist. Today, Aaron and I spent the day walking around Artscape. I believe this is the fifth year we have went together so it holds a special place in my heart. I love looking around and we often times have been able to find affordable new artwork for our apartment which is nice. As I am about to embark on a new journey I realize how important it is to cherish every moment and remember them. They all go by so fast. I can’t believe it but I can say I am so extremely lucky to live this life.
Good friends. Delicious food. Fun location. While I am still getting used to Baltimore and I am hoping it is only temporary I am enjoying the times I am having so far.
